John C. Kennebeck

Mr. Kennebeck lived around the corner from me on Hurck Street. I went to school with his grandchildren, Anna and Jack, who, lived on the same street. They moved away after 1993, when this area flooded. Anna was gracious enough to participate in the Oral History project when the parish closed, and her mother Madelynn taught at St. Boniface for many years.

Our condolences go out today to the entire Kennebeck family.

Colleen - I am sorry that I didn't see this until now. Thank you for commemorating my grandfather in this way. He spent many a Sunday Mass in St. Boniface's pews, and it was an integral part of his life. Thank you.
